earth day!

Monday April 22, 2013


Staying positive and calm on this Earth Day.

Spring has not sprung yet, but I can tell it is getting close.

Trying to be more patient — with everything.

It makes everything feel better.

Happy Earth Day!!


maybe done, almost done

The kitchen is seriously ready to be done.

I mean, we are seriously ready to be done with the kitchen.

Counter tops…sink…oven…dishwasher…omgoddness.

It is so ready.

I mean, I am so ready for it to be done.

birthday month

Monday October 1, 2012

I can hardly believe it is October. Where did September go? Where did the summer go?!

I’ve had six weddings in a row and am trying to stay on top of editing…I’m feeling stressed and behind and anxious about the thousands of photos I’ve taken. YIKES.

I looked outside today and almost all the leaves fell off our tree in the back. I swear they were all there yesterday. I don’t want to miss my favorite time of year sitting behind my computer…need to get outside more.

I turn 33 on the 23rd. That is officially 1/3 of the way to 99 — which is wild to think about and might seem old to some people — but, let’s face it, I’ve got a lot of life left to live.

Haven’t done a Paleo update in a long time. We’ve done our best in the absence of an actual kitchen — grilling meats, veggies, and making salads. So many salads! Of course, pizza (and the Birchwood Cafe) is a favorite if it just seems too much to prepare something without a proper kitchen.

I’ve maintained my goal weight and fluctuate between 122 and 125. Which is exactly where I want to be. It’s hard to believe that just 18 months ago I was carrying around almost 20 more pounds. WTF. Crazy.

Starting weight: 139.9
Today’s weight: 123.9

Jake made major progress on the kitchen this past weekend. We now have walls. Is the end in site? Let’s hope!

Random chit chat post today — which are necessary to help me remember where I was and where I want to be….or something like that.

Here I am with baby Florence, officially the newest member of chit chat club. She is the sweetest, and I love her already.

from hilarious to annoyed, just like that

You know when you are so annoyed that it feels like your head is going to explode.

And tears are welling up.


That’s me, right now.

From hilarious to annoyed, JUST LIKE THAT.
